 In honor of Women’s History Month, Hunterdon Healthcare and the Hunterdon & Mercer Regional Chronic Disease Coalition will host a free online health series featuring important women’s health issues starting Thursday, March 4th from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm and running weekly through March 25, 2021.

Women are invited to participate in the series which will address topics unique to women’s health including breast care, gynecological health, emotional wellness and nutrition and lifestyle. “The program will feature local experts who will share prevention and health management strategies that can last a lifetime,” noted program organizer Bonnie Petrauskas, Regional Coordinator for the Hunterdon-Mercer Chronic Disease Coalition. “Speakers will include Jennifer Montes, MD, MPH, Hunterdon Breast Surgery Center, Manisha Abeysinghe, MD, Advanced Obstetrics and Gynecology, LLC, Ellen Gantner, PsyD, Hunterdon Behavioral Health, and Jeanne Gee, RDN, CSO, CDE, Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.

Celebrated annually in March, Women’s History Month is a perfect time to celebrate and recognize women for the important role they play in shaping the future. Women experience unique healthcare challenges from pregnancy and menopause to gynecological conditions. In addition, chronic diseases and conditions such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes are the leading causes of death for women; and conditions such as depression, anxiety and osteoarthritis affect more women than men. Since women often spend time helping others, this program series provides an opportunity to take some time for themselves. “We are delighted to offer an engaging experience for women in the community to get the latest information to help them live a healthier life,” stated Dr. Barbara Tofani, Assistant Vice President, Outpatient & Ambulatory Services at Hunterdon Medical Center.
